New Crowther Cat Headed For Tasmania’s Gordon River

Friday, May 16, 2003
An eco-friendly tourist catamaran by Crowther Design and builder RDM is headed for Tasmania’s Gordon River. The vessel will be the fifth commercial vessel designed and built by the pair to operate in the popular tourist region.

Designed and built for the vessel’s operator, Gordon River Cruises, it is their second vessel from Crowther and RDM.

The new vessel is 32m, with a 9 m beam and a passenger capacity of 220. The design has floor to ceiling windows on the main and mid decks and raised center aisle seats allowing more vision for passengers. The vessels unique design features a curved bow, deck ends and transom, and a Portuguese bridge.

The vessel is powered by two MTU 16V 2000 engines coupled to ZF 2250 gearboxes which drive five-bladed propellers. With a range of 250 n.m. at 25 knots and a top speed of 30 knots, the vessel’s (as with all Crowther vessels on the Gordon River) hull has been designed and tested so as to meet the stringent low wash National Parks and Wildlife requirement for this World Heritage listed river.
